because that's supposed to be your lot in life is get married and have children. so i think america has a lot of all of that together and their legislation and the things you're asking for in getting people to realize this human rights. this human rights and we are all human. african-american, latina, all of them are human. so how is the next that going towards moving towards an area of getting terms that are acceptable but don't get people coming in now, you say i'm a feminist that are except the red flag and people don't listen to you. so how do we move and strive to take the religious stuff out of the marriage and just take that out. same thing with the hospitals. yes catholic hospitals, but they have the right not to service people. and if they have the right not to service, where they getting federal funds come in medicaid, money? so when you have to look at it, a lot of religion is smashed into hurricanes. so are there any groups that are targeting that area quite >> i'll be really quick on this one can say a lot of the advocacy organizations, including ours are working on moving
represents is the coming together, the mixture, the melting, the synthesis of all the communities of america. look at america's urban communities today. in america's urban communities, every group resides. every economic class resides. every strand of political philosophy resides. great academic institutions make up the fabric of urban america. great media organizations, libraries, cultural institutions make it the fabric of urban america. urban represents the best of america and represents the 21st century america is really all about, which is each and every one of us together, deplorably spooned them. so i encourage people b&b around terminology that we understand what it means. and so the. , while it is a discussion about challenges, problems and solutions that urban communities face, it is a discussion about challenges, opportunities, solutions for the nation at large. i submit to you in 21st century america, the suburbs are now part of urban america. witness the suburbs of this capital city, whether it's northern virginia or maryland and you find the very same tapestry of america that i
are in. >> [speaking in native tongue] >> and of course to increase the integration of north america to take advantage of the spaces we have not only in this part of the world but asia of course and just mentioning for instance one the trans-pacific partnerships and the government is very much interested in strengthening this because we believe this is great be a great opportunity. >> [speaking in native tongue] [speaking in native tongue] >> yes and of course in terms of security that is another challenge we face. my government has set out to reduce the violent situation in the country, and for that of course we have set out to launch a strategy for this purpose. we want to help, we have the will to help for the southern states and of course in terms of the border we won the borders to be a safe modern connected a border that is exactly what we set out to accomplish. >> [speaking in native tongue]3 >> [speaking in native tongue] >> for this migration reform demanding what you should do or shouldn't do we want it to contribute and participate towards the accomplishment. so of course
states of america this is the way you need to do it. so what we try to do at the league had to share this as an example that this is what you're fighting with the aggressors level is number one, coach kerri campbell and i went to a lake. we said this. you know i want to do? we played at the highest level, so there is a model standard. authority out there. the nfl authority set a standard for youth coaches in america. the problem is they don't embrace the changes because it's all about winning. win at all costs mentality. winning is good, but nobody remembers years from now. what matters is the effects of the game. so what we tried to do was, okay, if you guys want to improve safety and you want to improve coming you know, making sure coaches are responsiblefor me being accountable and credible, then implement the leagues are just like the nfl pa. they protect the west players. they work alongside with the nfl to come and say okay, these are things we want to give. these are the things most important and these are the issues. they may have to be legislative. i don't know. if we seriou
is possible in this area that does not get america caught in traps of unnecessary wars, replication of imperialism, and quagmire. so you have these two examples of egypt and libya which are most striking. and here you have people on the streets, clearly in opposition to the dictator there. for example, tiananmen square, bush junior and a crackdown there. around the 50s, of course, lots of examples where we tell folks and we say if you want to crack down on us, that is the typical way it is going down. for president bush to go to hosni mubarak and say you can't stand aside, you're not going to keep this if you do it that way. because of that factor, one of the key factors are gotten pushed out, libya was a different story where he had a possibility of a massacre during an obama said, well, i would like to stop that from happening, very much so. but if i can get a true international coalition through the u.n., then i might not do it. i have to make sure that i'm actually going to have that. >> how about a true blue declaration of war or our own congress. even congressional authorizati
had the revenue and growing our economy. you can't raise taxes on america's economy. half of our small businesses take their taxes out as personal incomes income so unless you follow the corporate tax in the personal income tax rate you don't encourage job growth. that is the uncertainty that is out there that you will increase taxes and who will you increase taxes on? the death tax, do you want to give your business or farm or ranch dear children? taxed at 55%? that's ridiculous so really what we need to do is we need a simple, fair program where an attorney or accountant can do there taxes and that will grow our economy and make north dakota and our country a global power again. heitkamp: waiver provost off there. we have the romney proposal in the ryan proposal and that is the proposal that congressman berg supported and i can stay with as much certainty as they possibly can that is not revenue chore -- mitchell when you eliminate the alternative minimum tax because it will lower the tax for the wealthiest. it will increase taxes on the middle class. that is not a path forward for
normal in the context of america, american powder and leadership and i was just so does seen how powerful did america in 1979 after the tom, not very. how powerful did america look in 188910 years later extremely powerful. how powerful did america look in 1899? it looks essentially invincible. how powerful and 2009 now? we settled down, but we don't know what we settled down into. it started the basic question we forget how quickly the perceptions and strength of american leadership can be. one question that arises and what can potentially be questioned about the new normal is in all of these previous. from the perception has been that america has wanted to lead the free world and i'm not quite so sure whether america really love to do that anymore and i wondered what she thought about that. >> will get some responses to these questions. >> i think you picked up quite rightly the question of the degree to which the united states wants to lead it was seen as a subset of fact, wants to spend the resources that it takes to lead. so you hear this doubt and president obama's own words each tim
compare a base latin america you had extractions, you agreed to pay up the military, provide them perks as long as corporate interests could be asked to step aside and allow civilians to return to government. in the middle east the security sector is aligned with a great deal of indigenous institutional and bureaucratic and economic interests. yet the problem of deep state and therefore getting the military to extract themselves from their involvement is not just a matter of a simple payoff. it's much deeper interest in a web of entries linking the military to the bureaucracy and economic actors, international or person that makes the whole process much more complicated. it's huge resistance. the other is to emphasize is that in the arab world, in the middle east and more generally, the struggle to create a social contract is also a struggle over issues of identity and how in what ways we restructure the relationship between mosque and state is a critical issue. to the extent struggles between islamists and secularists magnify perceptions are not only can you let terry, but the interest
to the challenges and in a way that we did keep america beautiful, keep america safe, i think that we really need to do that. the second point -- i have three of them. the second point is that the sky is falling ocean is just hurting us. because people say yeah, right. but i think that we need to not communicate the sky is falling in the sky is just not going to fall. a lot of people compare now to what we did and there was a certain amount of sky is falling with y2k. the sky didn't fall. nothing fell out the sky. yet we felt we spent a lot of time and resources. last one i want to make is that it is difficult to share information when we have two political fortunes to classify. it is something that i need to know or communicate. i can't communicate what you guys right now. but yet, the key aspects that are important that you might need it now but i can tell you -- >> what you mean? >> you try to communicate the best way you can. and so the set have something to tell you, it's really important, just trust me -- that only goes so far. >> so in this scenario -- >> yeah, but you can't read and 44,00

, and a former adviser to hillary clinton. hosted by the world affairs council of america, this is 45 minutes. [applause] >> all right. it's a great pleasure to be here with such a great panel, three ambassadors and one globally renowned journalist and scholars so i've been told that there's been a lot of questions about pakistan, afghanistan so far already in the proceedings, and i think we have first great panel to deal with those. what i'm going to do in terms of focusing the discussion is i'm going to tee off with questions to each of the panelists. one each, and then i'll allow for a little of follow-up, and i'll open the floor to you so you have time to engage with them. let me begin with, ambassador, who, you already got the bio, but is, i think, in some ways, almost uniquely positioned to provide us a very recent perspective on what pakistan looks like to the united states, to official american advisers and diplomats, and also lived the u.s.-pakistan relationship in what was an exceedingly drift and trying time, which is no reflection op him, but a reflection on something much broader

about the instability and opportunity as they say in america, an opportunity to change the channel. is it likely an opportunity for assad to change the channel and get an engagement with israel and -- [inaudible] >> put aside -- discuss palestine, it is a unifying ground for arabs and for muslims so i don't -- i mean, again the danger of changing the subject away from syria is really multiple faceted, but those things would be an opportunity to strike a deal between the regime, and maybe they did all right, but it's not about giving back, and we can talk about the development more later, but i think the israelis have to decide actually what is it in interest? is it better to consider that jihadis, dangerous for them, if you will, and couple up with the regime or stay coupled up with the regime because they have been for a long time. is that in their better interest? is it in their interest to understand that this regime is gone, going, a selling point. doesn't matter whether it's within a month or year or two and therefore to hasten to cut short the escalation of the extremists and
